Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon Launches Today

Today Ubisoft has released a standalone expansion for Far Cry 3, entitled Blood Dragon. A new launch trailer sets up the surreal adventure that players will embark upon.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon depicts an alternate version of 2007, in which the Earth has been devastated by nuclear war. Cyber commando Rex Power Colt is sent to a remote island to prevent a powerful bioweapon from being used. He'll have to combat a cyborg army as well as laser-breathing dragons.

The game is a sloppy love letter to the 1980's. Everything that can be neon is neon: armor, guns, and even snakes. When you shoot someone, they spray neon blue blood.

Ubisoft previously stated that the game is 6-8 hours long. I'm concerned whether the "hey, remember the eighties?" shtick will get old by the end of the campaign. It can't be any worse than That Eighties Show, though.

Blood Dragon is currently available throughout North America and will spread to Europe and other territories tomorrow.
